  • Published at 05:00 pm December 13th, 2015

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has directed to block the social networking sites Twitter, Skype and Imo barely three days into unblocking Facebook.

Sumon Ahmed Sabir, chief strategic officer of Nationwide Telecommunication Transmission Network (NTTN) operator [email protected], told the Dhaka Tribune on Sunday night that the BTRC issued the directive though an email.

“The BTRC instructed us to block Skype, Imo and Twitter alongside Viber and other apps in our network with immediate effect until further instruction.”

The telecom regulatory body also requested frequent monitoring and taking necessary measures if the services change their IP address, port addresses and application signatures, he added.

[email protected] provides transmission services to ANS operators (ISP, Cable TV, Telco, etc.), ICX, IGW, IIG and government organisations.
